From smoother hair to hydrated skin, there are some quite amazing health and beauty benefits to silk pillowcases. Here are some of the top benefits of a silk pillowcase.
The super smooth texture of silk allows your hair to glide over its surface without causing friction. Unlike other types of pillowcases, this stops your hair strands from snagging, rubbing, and tangling at night to prevent split ends, breakage, frizz, and messy hair in the morning.
Unlike highly absorbent cotton, silk’s smooth material does not soak up moisture from the skin. Sleeping on a silk pillowcase will keep your skin nice and hydrated, without draining it of its natural moisture nor any expensive beauty products you apply before bed! This means silk pillowcases are great for dry skin and dry winter weather.
Another benefit of the soft qualities of silk is that it allows the material to smoothly glide across your face as you move in your sleep. This way, silk pillowcases can prevent the occurrence of fine lines and wrinkles – as well as allow you to wake up looking fresh the next day without creased skin.
While most pillowcases accumulate bacteria and dust over time, silk’s natural fibres are more resistant to allergens. The benefits of having a hypoallergenic pillow may be more extensive than you think! While reducing the build-up of bacteria, dust and other allergens on your pillow, silk is great for people with sinus allergies, it can also be a big help in clearing up many kinds of skin issues, as well as reducing general face and eye puffiness in the morning.
A status symbol for thousands of years, silk is regarded as being luxurious for good reason.
